Why is North Carolina so slow?

Fox NewsCounting votes can be a bit slower in North Carolina because the state allows more time, compared to other states, to count absentee and provisional ballots.

State law dictates individual counties have until Nov. 13 to report results from ballots tied to Tuesday’s election. But county election boards must also stick to a strict meeting schedule that is outlined by state law. And ballots are not counted until those meetings.

Nine county election boards met for their scheduled meetings to count absentee ballots for the first time since Election Day.

This appears to explain the North Carolina delay, and the large number of outstanding absentee ballots makes it harder to project a winner from election day results. Does not mean shenanigans are not occurring in the meantime, of course.
